It’s my Party…

flag banner

Last night my 3 year old and her little 3 year old friend carlo hosted a 35th birthday party for her auntie april (seriously)! not surprisingly, the hit of the party was the lovely fabric banner we bought at Flock, handmade by ottawa’s own katie dutton. lovely katie!

the big road trip!

so christina and i picked up and headed to toronto last thursday in her dad’s fancy new shiny blue bullet like matrix (thanks dick!) to go and hang with our designers at the one of a kind show!

i could fill pages with trip details (like when we almost ran out of gas and ended up hitching to brockville with 40 pairs of candi factory undies and a box of eikcam ceramics) but instead i’ll just tell you all of the lovely goodies that we saw (and bought)!


jennifer glasgow, lovely as ever and in desperate need of a pee break (those shows sure can be long!), was wearing her new jersey dress – super cute, kelly green, with huge pockets and a tree print…undeniably the pick of summer! we should be getting them soon!

candi factory

candance of candi factory surprised us this show by handing us a huge bag full of her amazing undies! she, as a mother of two (two!) is a busy lady and we were honoured to get them…come over and get yourself a pair, they are certainly back by popular demand!


grace lee, the amazing ceramicist filling much of flock’s housewares section, also gave us a box of goodies – casserole dishes, vases and mugs with lovely and unusual prints…perfect for hosting this summer!

these are only a few of the fab items we brought back and had promised to us at the show – you’ll have to come in and see the rest for yourselves!

see you there!
